3rdwave Presents: Is the Customs Broker Obsolete? | August 20 at 2 p.m. ET

The Customs Broker has been a constant in trade for over 100 years. They have been both the importer’s interface to customs and PGAs and a valued source of knowledge and general information to the importer. However, in this time of massive technological change, is the Customs Broker now obsolete?

Join us for a debate and be part of the exchange. Dan Gardner, an LCB, former NVO, a previous BCO argues that the Customs Broker is and remains a vital member of any Import/Exporter’s team.
